Deb Shaw interviewed by Bill Monroe, Stroke Cast Founder.

Three strokes changed Deb Shaw’s trajectory from Cybersecurity sales superstar to stroke survivor and author. During the COVID lock downs of 2020, while others were mastering sour dough recipes, Deb formed a nonprofit organization to provide inspiration and resources to stroke survivors around the world. She shares her journey and how she hopes to inspire other survivors in this conversation.

Deb Shaw was at the top of her career, selling cybersecurity technical products to government customers for a silicon valley powerhouse. Things were going great. Then she had a stroke. And then she had another stroke. And then she had a third stroke, paired with a concussion.

Since then, she started a nonprofit with her husband and has produced more than 10 booklets for stroke survivors to help them navigate their new lives.

Recently, the American Heart Association named Deb their latest Survivor Hero.
